Nestled amongst five-acres of historic woodlands, Woolrich Retreat is a secluded romantic hideaway with beautiful views of the majestic Dandenong Ranges. With two self-contained accommodation options designed with couples in mind, this is the perfect location for a weekend getaway for those seeking peace and tranquility surrounded by the gentle sounds of nature. 

Ideally located, this enchanting retreat is just a short drive away from a myriad of natural attractions. Head out on a romantic drive and enjoy the stunning view over Melbourne from SkyHigh Mt Dandenong, spend a day in one of the local wineries, or take a very romantic hot air balloon ride at sunset over the stunning Yarra Valley. 

Back at your accommodation, open the private gate to the stunning Cloudehill Gardens for a romantic evening stroll, or go the other way into the Woolrich Woodlands with its meandering paths, lyrebirds, azalea maze and the dell.

Woolrich Cottage

Built in the 1920’s, this historic art deco style cottage was once the residence of Ted Woolrich who started the former nursery from which the surrounding woodlands have grown. Recently renovated, this elegant 2 bedroom cottage still retains many of its original features as well as fine furnishing that beautifully compliment the period architectural features, such as the Art Deco leadlight windows. 

The cottages’ beautiful kitchen provides plenty of space to prepare delicious freshly made meals that can be enjoyed indoors or outside on the deck, which comes complete with a BBQ for alfresco dining. Quiet time with a book can be spent by the bay windows, and a romantic, cosy night in with a glass of bubbly can be spent by the open fire in the lounge or soaking in the spa bath tub for four under the glass skylight. 

Both of the well-appointed bedrooms feature walk-in wardrobes and large ensuite bathrooms complete with shower and bath tub, so two couples can enjoy equal luxury and privacy. There are also additional foldaway beds available on request.

Garden Retreat

The Garden Retreat is attached to the owner's residence nearby, but has it's own entrance and is positioned to offer guests absolute privacy. Designed in a French Provincial style, it boasts a spacious but intimate living space where couples can relax and unwind while enjoying the natural surroundings and the peacefulness of the woodlands. Equipped with a full kitchen with top appliances, you can cook a romantic dinner for two with the delicious local produce that can be found in the area. 

Spend your days admiring the view from the private balcony complete with BBQ and art deco table and chairs while sipping wine under the canopy of trees. In the evenings, imagine yourself sitting in the candlelight in front of an open wood fire in the cosy lounge area or stargazing at the night sky from your balcony. At night, retreat to your luxurious bedroom, complete with a large king size bed and a beautifully appointed ensuite bathroom with your very own spa bath for two.
